Politics NGF is Fractured, Gov Amaech Admits



Gov. Rotimi Amachi of Rivers has called on governors of the 36 states of the federation to reflect on the ``cracks within the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF)’’ ahead of 2015.

Ameachi, who is the chairman of a faction of NGF, made the call on Friday in Port Harcourt while declaring open the fourth retreat of the forum.

He said that the call became necessary to ensure that the forum remained intact in the interest of the nation and the people.

``I want us to reflect on the matter of the crack in the body of the NGF, since it is our dream and aspiration to remain intact and grow together as one.

``Regardless of any disagreement, the time to bring everybody back is now. Our country and the people bear the biggest brunt of a fractured forum,’’ Amaechi said.

He added that it was necessary for the governors to imbibe and internalise democratic tenets ahead of 2015.
